Maybe the Chinese and Japanese tourists think they're actually experiencing America when they stay here but it's not much of anything. The Red Lobster restaurant features a lot of beef! We tasted Taco Rice and Okinawan Spam Musubi. The Taco Rice is good if you...More

It's an area with very catchy n vibrant colors. Actually a Vegas feel. Many youngsters hip stores n western restaurants. But food is not very Japanese n more pricy than high Street shops. Locals choose other restaurants instead.

A variety of shops and goods reasonably priced. Eateries, restaurants, drug stores, clothing stores, nail shop, etc. in one centralized location.

Although the ferris wheel is visible from far away, the close up look was disappointing. The town looks old and could really use a renovation. A lot of the stores were empty, and the area gets really quiet after 21.00. There a two arcades (Dragon...More

There's something for everyone at American Village. The shopping is hit or miss, with sizes and prices that Americans will find unsettling. However, just to window shop is so much fun, and with so many great restaurants at such wide variety, one can easily fill...More
